Commissions for Business

Thematic Resonance- Coherency and Impact

Imagine the impact of a stunning large scale original work in your lobby, with the signature themes and color palettes extended into a custom print series in your adjoining rooms. The effect is a thematic resonance which speaks volumes about who you are in a language that transcends the mind and goes directly to the heart.


If a picture speaks a thousand words-
                     what are your walls saying?

Real Results

With 'a thousand words' imprinted in a few seconds of viewing, doesn't it make sense to choose what you're saying? Intelligent, well chosen works of art can be a potent force of image and identity. Your "subliminal logo" will be remembered not just mentally, but emotionally- in the realm where choices are made.

Commissions for the Home

Your home is a personalized reflection of your personality and values. When you choose a customized work of art, you fill your living space with more of who you really are.

A commissioned work of original art often becomes a treasured family heirloom. It is no surprise that in a sudden evacuation, such as a fire or flood, an original work of art is one of the top three items taken from the home.

Why Commission a custom work of Art?

Commissioning a work of art is a superb solution for many situations. Perhaps your favorite piece has been sold, or is too large or too small to fit the desired display space. Perhaps the work you see has sparked an idea in your mind and you would like to explore working with the artist to bring your vision into reality.

It is a thrilling process to collaborate with a talented artist in the realization of work that expresses your Spirit. It is truly exhilarating. There are few things in life that are this much fun and deliver such lasting enjoyment.


What is involved with commissioning a work?

* You don't have to know what you want before you start. Once we begin, the creative juices will flow. Guaranteed.

* The time it takes is up to you. We can work with you in depth, collaborating in the details. We can also work from a short initial interview to create a concept sketch for your review. From the get-go, the process is designed to suit your needs.

How does it work?

1]   We will help you explore your ideas and create a clarified vision of your project.
